Code Pink is becoming one of my most favorite activists groups.
Today I noticed that they are sending out Valentines to the White House and their message of peace was exactly what I needed to say to President Obama.
I hope the WH fax machine gets flooded with these peaceful Valentine messages. Please do your part too.
Take a look at their ACTION CENTER.
Download your Valentine to President Obama, or make your own. Then Fax your Valentine to the White House at (202) 456-2461.
Our hearts are broken over Obama's furthering of Bush's tragic legacy in the Middle East by bombing Afghanistan and Pakistan and by appointing hawkish Dennis Ross to be in charge of diplomacy with Iran.
It is said that the definition of insanity is to repeat the same action but to expect a different result. President Obama is a deeply intelligent man, but it is crazy for him to stay on Bush's course of empire building, and all the devastation and loss of life it leaves in its wake. Obama promised change; well, sometimes the best way to change is to STOP.
Let's send Obama hearts that say: STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE, STOP IN THE NAME OF CHANGE.
Send your Valentine today and remind Obama to keep his promises to the American people by creating true and lasting change, not more of the same failed policies.The Desired Outcome of this Petition:
STOP bombing Afghanistan and Pakistan!
STOP war with Iran!
STOP the empire building.
To: President Barack Obama
We petition that…
STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE
STOP IN THE NAME OF CHANGE
Dear Mr. President,
You've given us hope
But you've promised us change
So some of your actions,
They seem a bit strange
You don't want to be Bush
So stop following his lead
Stop sending out drones
That make innocents bleed
These bombs that you're sending
They kill when they drop
Sometimes the best way to change
Is to STOP
So stop in the name of change
Stop in the name of love
Before you break our hearts
Before push comes to shove
Diplomacy's the answer
But not through Dennis Ross
We asked for real change
When we elected you "boss"
So this Valentine's Day
Don't be a Karl Rover
And help us to say that
"War is SO Over!"
